Customer Question

I have a beagle that began limping and is shaking and chattering her teeth. I have had her to the vet twice in the last two weeks and have run every test to rule out Lyme disease and elevated White cell counts in addition to diabetes. She was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Is there something else that was not considered that would be causing my girl to shiver and be unable to walk?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Yes. That was the first thing I looked at when this all started
JA: The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Noel. I adopted her from a shelter two years ago and they though t she was 12. She was a puppy mill mother and was highly overbread. Would anything possibly be causing this as a result of that
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Noel?
Customer: Not that I know

If you do not have any other questions please rate me as this is how I make money to support my family. Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have. ( You can rate me at top right of page).

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
